3LR will be hosting the grade 2/3 elementary assembly this Friday from 1:30 in BS101. We would love for you to join us for our final student led assembly of the year. Should take between 30-40 minutes.

Any questions please feel free to ask.



Dear parents,
Today we are sending home the ISA reports with your child for them to share with you. The International School’s Assessment is a test that measures your child’s reading, writing, and math skills compared to other students your age. Students from around the world participate in this exam. It is important to understand that this is only one measurement of your child’s abilities. We also check regularly each student’s progress through classroom activities, formative tasks, and unit work.
NOTE: Some students will not receive a report because they did not participate in the exam. There is no make-up exam.
Mr. Luke Rea.

Dear Parents,

We are just past the half way mark with our swimming sessions for G1,2,3, and 4.

Our intention at this stage is that your child is becoming more aware of their

–       Strengths and weaknesses within the water

–       Progress thus far within the 3 strokes and survival skills

–       Specific areas that they need to improve in within the 3 strokes

We encourage you to have a conversation with them by asking open ended inquiry questions – Some examples of questions to engage in conversation are –

–       What did the coach tell you that you were doing well in – BACKSTROKE/BREASTSTROKE/FREESTYLE? (just choose one)

–       Which swimming technique/style do you use when swimming under water?

–       What is your favorite stroke in swimming – why?

–       What do the arms do in – BACKSTROKE/BREASTSTROKE/FREESTYLE? (just choose one)

–       What do the legs do in – BACKSTROKE/BREASTSTROKE/FREESTYLE? (just choose one)

Don’t forget that next week is our open swim week. We invite all parents to come along and see what we do in swimming. All visitors must remain on the viewing deck and no photos are allowed to be taken.

Regards – Kit and Karen


G3 artists design symbols to investigate pattern & the harmony it creates

G3 artists design symbols to investigate pattern & the harmony it creates

Grade 3 artists are investigating ‘How The World Works’ in our newest Art unit of inquiry. They inquired into positive and negative space by creating notans, and lately have studied Adinkra symbols and created their own symbol. They are aiming to discover that pattern creates order and harmony.

Each symbol has a meaning and will be made into a relief print. We are starting to think about background colours that could support or even enhance the meaning of the symbol now.

Plus, students took time to use the collage app on the iPads to check each symbol design will connect as desired when it is printed in a set of 4. Rotating the block looks like it will bring a whole new artwork out in many of the young artist’s designs!

Now careful carving of EZ cut is underway so the printing can happen next lesson – I will be sure to get more photos next week and hope you can see their symbol designs when you stop by Art during the Student-Led Conferences.

I can’t wait to see the results and they are coming soon!

Student Led Conference Information + Science Fair Photos

Dear parents,

Tomorrow, Saturday 11th of May is the student led conferences. This counts as a school day and students are expected to wear their school uniforms. This is an opportunity for students to choose some pieces of work from throughout the year that they would like to share. These pieces may be something they are proud of, something that they found challenging, or an area where they have felt that they have really improved on.

Thank you for supporting our grade 3 science fair. The kids really appreciated having a big audience to share and present their experiments and results. Included is the parent presentation, that was held in the media centre.
